Five Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Thursday, October 25, 2018

Divorce mediation is becoming commonplace in the 21st century. Divorce mediation is a process through which parties to a divorce meet, and through the guidance and assistance of a mediator, work toward a negotiated settlement of their case. A divorce mediator does not make decisions for the parties. Rather, the mediator enhances and furthers the settlement process through his or her expertise.


Saves Money


A key benefit associated with divorce mediation is that, in most cases, the process saves money. The success rate associated with divorce mediation is high. Therefore, a case submitted to a mediator is less likely to face the financial cost of protracted litigation and a divorce trial.


Saves Time


On a related note, mediation saves time. Divorce cases that are mediated conclude much faster than those which are not involved in this alternative dispute-resolution process. The personal benefits associated with concluding a divorce case quickly are significant. A person is in a position to get on with his or her life sooner rather than later.


Saves Emotional Wear and Tear


There is no doubt that ending a marriage can be one of the most emotionally challenging experiences in a person's life. Mediation lessens the emotional wear and tear on a divorcing couple.


As trained professionals with experience in divorce cases, mediators assist couples in working through issues while keeping emotions in check. Couples who participate in mediation typically report that they "feel good" because of the process. They tend to be more optimistic about the outcome of divorce proceedings. The level of anger and frustration lessens when mediation is included as part of resolving a divorce case.


More Acceptable Resolution


People who are mediated report they are more satisfied with the ultimate resolution of a divorce than are people who litigate issues. Through mediation, the parties have more significant control over how a particular divorce case resolved.


Healthier Relationships


People whose cases have been mediated tend to have healthier relationships with their exes when a divorce concludes, which is particularly important when a divorced couple has children.


Lawyers typically can provide clients with basic information about divorce mediation. This includes resources about how to contact a mediator and how to prepare for the process. Most lawyers are eager to encourage their clients to participate in divorce mediation.
